Your child’s safety is our number one priority! We implement the rigorous safety and sanitary standards set by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

To provide the safest environment we have implemented air purifiers, sneeze guards, electronic check-in processes, low aerosol protocols and much more into our office.

Dental Education and Tips
Our goal as your local dentist is to provide your child with a visit that educates good oral habits, provides dental tips to enhance brushing and flossing at home, and make routine visits fun! Visit our kid’s club page to download cool activities to get started today!
Parents are not only welcome, but encouraged to be with their child throughout the entire dental appointment. This provides comfort and ease to both child and parent! We value our parents and want them to be involved.
Our team and doctors, consisting of pediatric specialists and general dentists who focus on children, go way beyond the basics to make sure each visit is safe, comfortable, informative, and fun. We specialize and are trained to work with infants, young children, adolescents, and those with special needs. Please specify the child’s needs when making an appointment so that we can provide the proper provider and treatment plan.

Locust Parent Reviews
Wonderful staff, very fun and informative. Was playing with my daughter so she would be interested in what was going to happen to her next month. They even put a note on my daughters account she does not like blue gloves, lol. Love this place and the people
Our family has been part of the Anson Family & Pediatric Dentistry for 2 years. Ms. Cynthia is super sweet and patient. The staff is friendly and does there best to accommodate the times for our family to be seen at the same time. When I call to request a statement, the response time to get me the statement is within minutes. Great team and service.
From the front desk, to the hygienist, to the dentist, everyone was friendly, professional and helpful! The hygienist even asked about my husband for a warm, family, welcoming feeling!!
